You Will Not Surely Die
Greetings in the name of Jesus! This is Rob Haymes. This is 15 Minutes With Jesus. Wherever two or three are gathered together in My name, Jesus said, there am I in the midst of them. To those of you who love Him in truth: Mercy unto you and peace and love be multiplied. Immediately as I was starting this program, I had a tongue and interpretation from the Lord. Following is the interpretation thereof:
I am God Almighty. All of you who are listening to My servant Rob this day: humble yourselves; humble yourselves before the living God. Consider these words that he is about to speak, for I have sent him; I have ordained him as a pastor, and as a feeder of My sheep, and I have sent him to speak to you. I want you to take these words very seriously, says the Lord, for I love you, and I have sent him to warn you. Now listen carefully to what he has to say, says the Lord, for I have given him these words for you, says the Lord, Amen.
Today we’re going to talk about You Will Not Surely Die. Let’s turn to Gen 2:15-17,
Then the Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to tend and keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. Gen 3:1-24, Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, Has God indeed said, You shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said to the serpent, We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die. Then the serpent said to the woman, You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings. What did God tell Adam in the Garden of Eden?: Of every tree of the Garden you may freely eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you may not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die. What did Satan tell Eve?: You will not surely die. What happened to Adam and Eve when they believed the lie and ate of the tree in disobedience to God? They brought curses upon themselves and they died spiritually. They were thrust out of the Garden of Eden, away from the tree of life, from which God had said they could freely eat, and they lost access to eternal life. They surely did die.
Let’s turn to John 3:16-21, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God. Now let’s turn to Rom 8:1-8, There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God. Verse 12-17, Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die; remember: Satan said, You will not surely die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father." The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together. 2 Thess 2:9-12, The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, speaking of the AntiChrist, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. What is the lie?: You will not surely die.
Let’s turn to 1 John 1:1-10, That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life—the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us—that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ. And these things we write to you that your joy may be full. This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. The Church today is full of darkness. Gross darkness covers the people. So many people are not loving the truth, but having pleasure in unrighteousness. Many are lovers of self, lovers of money, and lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God. We are living in perilous times. When a church is in darkness , there is no fellowship with the Father or with His Son. Jesus is not there. And there is no true fellowship with one another. In many of these churches they worship in darkness; they worship the Lord in vain. Jesus said, This people honors Me with their lips but their heart is far from Me. In vain do they worship Me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. These very doctrines, the doctrines of false grace, say, You will not surely die. You’re under grace. All your sins are forgiven, past, present and future. No one goes to hell for what they do. When you tell someone that all their future sins are forgiven, you are telling them that they can practice sin and not die. You will not surely die. If we say that we have fellowship with Jesus and walk in darkness, we lie and do not the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and with the Father, and with His Son, and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. You say, How do I know if there is darkness in my church? In Isa 8:20 it is written, If they speak not according to this Word, it is because there is no light in them. Are they truly speaking according to the Scriptures? Where two or three are gathered together in my name, Jesus said, there am I in their midst. In my name means in the light of who He is and what He spoke. It means you belong to Him. Our fellowship is in Him; in the light. We cannot fellowship with darkness. Where two or three are gathered together in darkness, Jesus is not there. The Holy Spirit is not there because He is the Spirit of truth. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. Where there is darkness, where there are lies, He is not there and there is bondage. This is the whole problem in the Church. If you are somehow thinking you’re ok , while you continue in sin, because you’re “under grace”, you are walking in darkness, and that darkness has blinded your eyes. If you will humble yourself and come into the light and repent of your sins, you will be forgiven; the Blood of Jesus will cleanse you, and you can walk on in the light, in fellowship with the Father and with His Son and with your true brothers and sisters in Christ. The Scripture says, Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. It’s all about your heart. Will you love God and come to Him, or will you love your evil deeds and continue in darkness so they won’t be exposed? Don’t fool yourself. Someday all our works are going to be exposed, as we stand before Jesus our judge, and He has promised that He is going to give unto everyone of us according to our works. On that day there will be great rejoicing and great weeping and gnashing of teeth. The Books will be opened. Everything is in the Books, except those deeds that have been cleansed by the precious Blood of the Lamb, and we will all be judged according to what is written in those Books. Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.
Mat 7:21-23, Jesus said, Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the Kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? And then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness! Verses 24&25, Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, ( the truth), and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. He who does the truth shall live forever. Mat 7:13&14, Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. The way to eternal life is not easy. Don’t let anyone deceive you. It is narrow and difficult. There will be suffering, and we must continue in Jesus’ Words, doing them every day, denying ourselves, taking up our cross and following Him; being led by the Holy Spirit, loving the truth and being delivered from the evil, being conformed more and more to His image, on the road to holiness. Isa 35:8-10, A highway shall be there, and a road, and it shall be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for others. Whoever walks the road, although a fool, shall not go astray. No lion shall be there, nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it; It shall not be found there. But the redeemed shall walk there, and the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing, with everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
